  1. Just back from Holquin don't think it's to close to Veradaro. I bought a 8ft travel rod off amazon GoTour brand 4 piece packed easily in suitcase. The 5500 Shimano Utera salt reel was a little big for this stick 4500 salt likely better and 4000 freshwater would work. I also bought a Goture 11 ft collapse rod 700gm this 1 was junk guide placement just awful. I will get model numbers later. For all saltwater high tide is the game. Yes for the shrimp from cook 3 peso should get a bunch raw not cooked. take a small sandwich cooler bag from dollar store and zip lock bags for ice and shrimp. I put 4 beers or 2 and 2 beer pop. Cubans love a cold drink. Take Spider Thread with you to hold shrimp or bread on. Number 2 or 3 stainless bait hooks are good. I find the hand lining fascinating cant wait to try. Buy 30 lb Eagle Claw mono from Wal Mart $3 I waited to find the right guy and got about 6 hugs and 20 thank you. The 20 lb only so so. You clean raw shrimp and thread on hook then spider thread whole thing. The Lady Fish yellow black stripes will drive you crazy. We caught Yellow tail snapper most around 16 inches trolling with paddleboat . We needed a selection of split shot or rubber cores. Caught baby groupers 5 inches dragging bottom. The drop-off was a haul by paddleboat but that's where we need to be for larger fish. You will get offers for guide trips every day. Somebody has a friend or cab driver and friend with boat. I didn't take any of these offers. My fun is using the skills I've got make the adjustments to catch fish so great trip. Chumming with bread or shrimp heads and shells always helps. Any fishing line put 30 lb is what they need. Any hooks but stainless bait hook #2. And for the ladys hand creams and moisturizers , nail polish. Man I would like to be on the loose 20 year old.
  2. Had a S....T Show last fri with operator fired chainsaw up a 8 am, 6 wheel dragging huts around plus walk outs. Noise never stop to 11:30. Operator they would bite anyway.
  3. Have you run this boat with current setup. Did it feel front end light. Think I would temporary install battery's maybe just on floor near the permanent location just to get idea. Another thing get some of those mid western walleye sites. Michigan , Wisconsin.
  4. I don't waste my time worrying about what people think.
  5. I had a 1967 Toyota Crown used piece of crap. 2 clutches and blew it up twice. It didn't like being treated like a race car. It looked like a Rambler.
  6. I will give you twice what you payed new.
  7. I had a S10 with the 2.8 extended cab that was good up to 175k when I started towing a boat with it. Pop goes the weasel and a couple clutches. The only real dog 2010 Sierra 1500 with 75K started squeaking like a fan belt. had my mechanic look at it first new it was crank near back. GM insisted was de laminating cam week tear down was ready on fri. I was sitting with sales when call came. Good news your truck is done bad news its not fixed. Good news you own it I traded for 2011 that now has 280K.
  8. I was expecting Russia to be tough after losing first game. Stopped watching after 4-0 . Jason Bourne for the 5th time seemed better.
  9. I remember going into drug store for oil of Anise. Long strait hair mid back about 20 not sure why I got strange look from pharmacist .
  10. I worked 32.4 years GM south plant , battery , south stamping. Working the line everyday for 30 years you earned your money. Never hated didn't love it. The people that looked after things will do well and the others may never get it.
  11. Well I won't be fishing illegal Jan 2. Got my card yesterday.
  12. Most anglers thought Rice was my fav tourny lake but it was Tri Lakes. Also my most wins came on Tri Lakes. As a tournament guy the most fun for me was taking my fishing apart and reassemble. Or learning.
  13. I closed the bottom of my jack plate for little better hole shot. My SI is bolted to this plate so between motor an transom. I was careful to not have a strake messing water coming off hull. Don't remember reading that this could be a problem. Mine is bassboat an lowrance.
  14. If possible get the impeller done threw winter or do yourself not a big job.
